Have you ever spent an hour-long Teams meeting watching someone else’s ceiling fan spin as they read their slides to you? Maybe you’ve sat through a recorded course lecture that sounds like the speaker is even less interested in their material than you are. Neither one is fun. Over the past three years, virtual work has become a larger proportion of professional work. Meetings, interviews, trainings, classes, and entire degree programs are now conducted virtually. Consequently, this change requires participants to look more professional online. In our physical absence, our virtual presence has to convey trust, sincerity, warmth, and competence. This hands-on interactive presentation is applicable for faculty, staff, and administrators. Attendees will learn ten verbs for improving their virtual presence including how to make eye contact with their audience, why it’s a good idea to stand up when giving an online presentation, and exactly how much of your ceiling the audience should see (hint: zero percent). Participants will be able to make real-time adjustments as the session unfolds and will leave this session in better shape for their next online meeting, training, or class presentation.
